Two GJFD Personnel Test Positive for COVID-19


Grand Junction Fire Department has learned that two first responders have tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19.) The first responders quickly identified their symptoms and are self-quarantining and not on duty.  All GJFD personnel are continuing daily symptom monitoring and tracking prior to reporting for duty.  As with any case, all contact tracing and possible exposure notifications related to this case will be handled by Mesa County Public Health.

The City of Grand Junction, Grand Junction Fire Department, and Mesa County Public Health take this diagnosis seriously and are dedicated to the safety of our employees and the public throughout this process. 

This exposure does not affect our level service or the residents of our community at this time.  We will continue to work with the Mesa County Health Department to monitor the situation and make necessary changes to our operations to keep our employees and the community safe. The community and media will be notified of any operational changes, including fluctuating staffing, additional cases, and potential impacts to our services as a result of COVID-19. 

Community members are respectfully asked to only visit fire stations for emergency reasons. The Mesa County Public Health Hotline at (970)683-2300 is a resource for community members that are experiencing symptoms and need to be tested. For the most up-to-date health information visit  the CDC Website and the Mesa County Public Health Website.
